  essence music fest beauty suites Though most people associate Essence Music Festival with music and the amazing food of New Orleans, there were quite a few beauty events going on. So many beauty soirees went down that I almost didn’t have enough room in my suitcase. The pic below shows how jam packed my bag was of goodies I scored from some of my favorite brands. My luggage weighed in at 47.5 pounds and undoubtedly, half of that was hair and body products. And of course all of the products are super affordable.

When it comes to clothes, I love them. My closet is evidence of that. But when it comes to the world of beauty, I’m kinda intimidated. There are so many products on the market, I get way too overwhelmed and refrain from trying anything new because I don’t want to waste my money. Or have you ever bought a cheap beauty product and the quality is just as low as the price?
Well, there are a few beauty items I love that combine affordability and superior quality.
My skin is naturally oily and acne prone, but the one skincare product I use consistently is the Aztec Indian Healing Clay. I was first introduced to it a few years ago by T. Nicole from PintSizedInFluence and I’ve been hooked ever since.

spa week appointments When it comes to indulging in facials, massages and any other spa treatment, there’s normally a hefty price tag attached for top notch service. But getting pampered doesn’t have to set you back a ton. Luckily, all you need is 50 bucks to get the royal treatment you deserve.

Starting October 15, Spa Week returns! Hundreds of salons, spas and fitness centers across the U.S. and Canada have select services for just $50. Some of the treatments would normally cost in the hundreds but for one week only, they’re greatly discounted.

Last Spa Week I checked out Skintology‘s new midtown office for a microdermabrasion. It was my first time getting the procedure and I left happy. And I even continued going back for more treatments {I highly recommend Kristina}.

Am I the only one who’s tired of breaking the bank just for makeup? Burning a hole in your wallet for a tube of lip gloss is finally coming to an end with the launch of a new line that markets their products at less than $15.

LiSi Cosmetics was founded in 2011 by a couple who thought the industry was missing high-end merchandise at an affordable price. The great thing about the line is that it caters to women of every race and complexion. You can relate just from noticing the diversity of their models.
